Make sure to arrange a sublease contract and to write down the condition of the house and the furnishing in a transfer protocol. There is enough space in the sublease contract to arrange further agreements. All the forms are at your disposal for free by clicking on the links above.
If you have not seen the property before finalizing the contract and therefore have not met the sub-lessor personally, we recommend that you contact us before making your first payment – we are happy to arrange a secure method of payment with the provider.
Please make sure that you can contact the landlord within an appropriate time limit, also during his or her absence. If necessary, inquire before the departure of the landlord if there is an informed contact person who can act as a substitute in important cases.
